THE SLIDING DOOR THAT NEEDS NO ALIBIS WW 




AMERICA'S NEWEST, FINEST 



NATIONAL SLI-D-O-O-RS offer positive extra values, 
well worth your while to investigate and to compare . . . 
advantages such as superior performance, quality construction, 
easy installation, life-time durability, economy . . . 

. . . and, above all, a handsome, sliding door that will not 
warp! 

Exhaustive factory testing and an infinite number of com- 
pletely satisfactory installations from coast to coast, have 
proved that NATIONAL SLI-D-O-O-Rs are trouble free. 
They are solid throughout and slide smoothly, without binding, 
on a skillfully engineered, overhead track. 

They are delivered as a complete, pre-cut, packaged unit, with 
attached precision, overhead rolling hardware for easy installa- 
tion. Made of %" NOVOPLY, they take paint or stain with 
excellent results. 

No wonder SLI-D-O-O-Rs are found in more and more new 
homes today — and in older homes that are being modernized! 
They are as ultra-smart and modern as a late-model car . . , 
and they go a long way in saving space. 

By eliminating the swing-area that hinge-type doors require, 
SLI-D-O-O-Rs make every inch of floor and wall space usable 
. . . permit greater flexibility of furniture arrangement . . , 
provide more room in narrow halls where swing-type closet 
doors would clutter the passage and might present an accident 
hazard. 

SLI-D-O-O-Rs are recognized by home-owners, home-builders 
and architects throughout the country as the sliding doors 
which present a definite advancement in closet-door per- 
formance.
